I've really liked it for ages but hubby has hated it. Now he seems to be coming around, so I wonder if I still like it.

Honest opinions ok!

It's my ds middle name and he is 10 now and hates it so much .

I still like it though.

I like it

I adore it. It's one of my favourite boy names.

DD was going to be Albert. Lots of associated nicknames so he should be able to chose something he likes.

Although isn't that the name of Roxy's dog on Eastenders?

Still like the name though grin

I dont like it. Sorry.

No. Old man in flat cap. Possibly also pipe and slippers.

But then I dont like any of the old man names that seem so popular right now.

I don't like it.

I don't like it - agree with Weegiemum

I like it - it was my grandad's name!

I know a baby Albert - Albie. He is cute and so I think it is a cute name!

My least favourite of the "Bert" names.
People do say it is connected to a rude word when this has been discussed before - I'm sure somebody will enlighten us!

Googled and found Albert ring shock

I really like the nn Albie, not as sure about Albert though saldly.

My nephew is Albert (even more unusual middle name) He was nameless for the first 2 weeks and when my sister told me the chosen names, I laughed, I thought she must be joking. But, it has grown on me and is quite cute now. DS2 calls him Albie. Only thing I would caution, is if you have an estuary accent(like me) it's really hard to say properly (think Only Fools and Horses) so it depends where you live. e.g.I rejected lots of names with "th" in for my DSs,as I couldn't bear the thought of what their freinds would call them e.g. Maffew grin
